Instructor: Ricky Schaede
In this 6-week series, students will learn in-depth about portrait drawing from a reference with guidance from artist instructor Ricky Schaede. In the first 3 classes, we will all draw a portrait from the same reference, taking special care to learn how to draw each facial feature, learn about the structure and planes of the face, and how to capture accurate proportions. We will learn shading techniques for facial features, skin tone, hair, and more. In the last 3 classes, students will each choose their own portrait reference and create their own individual portrait using the skills and knowledge they have gained.
Every student will need:
A Sketchbook 8x10 or 9x12, the higher quality paper the better.
Sketching pencil set (2H, HB, 2B, 4B, 6B. Most pencil sets you buy in an art store will have a good range of pencils so as long as you have some light pencils 2H, 4H and some dark pencils like 2B and 6B you’ll be good!)
Paper Blending Stump
Optional Items: (these items aren’t required but they are useful and a great addition to your materials kit!)
Tombow Mono Zero Fine Point Eraser
Soft paintbrush for sweeping away eraser shavings
